50 minutes
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 6 oz each)
tsp kosher salt
tsp paprika
½ tsp garlic powder
1 C baby spinach (chopped)
C sun-dried tomatoes in oil (drained and chopped)
C crumbled feta cheese (reduced fat preferred)
1 medium shallot (chopped, or 1 small onion, chopped)
1 garlic clove (large, minced)
¼ C fresh basil (chopped or 2 tsp dried basil)
2 Tbsp plain panko breadcrumbs
1 Tbsp fresh oregano (or 1 tsp dried oregano)
1 Tbsp Parmesan cheese (grated)
1 Tbsp olive oil (divided)
  1. Preheat oven to 425o F.
  2. Slice a pocket into the sides of each chicken breast. Don't cut all the way through, just enough to create a place for the spinach mixture to go.
  3. Season both sides of chicken breasts with paprika and garlic powder. Set aside.
  4. In a medium bowl combine the sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, feta cheese, shallots, garlic, basil, breadcrumbs, oregano, parmesan cheese, and 1/2 tablespoon olive oil. Mix well and set aside.
  5. Divide spinach mixture between the chicken breasts and stuff into each, about 3/4 cup per chicken breast. If needed, you can use toothpicks to close chicken breast.
  6. Heat a large, oven-safe or cast-iron skillet over medium heat.
  7. Add the remaining oil and once hot, sear the chicken breasts on each side for 2 to 3 minutes, until browned.
  8. Transfer skillet to oven and finish cooking 12 to 15 minutes, until chicken reaches 165o F.
  9. Remove from oven and tent with foil for 5 minutes before eating, remove toothpicks
